Sides Still Far Apart in an Extension for RB Jacobs



According to today’s New York Daily News, the Giants and Brandon Jacobs still appear to be far apart on a contract extension, and it looks as if a deal will not get done by the opening of training camp on July 24th. The paper says that the two sides have been talking, but “nothing is close and nothing is expected to get done before camp starts.”

Jacobs, a fourth-round pick out of Southern Illinois back in 2005, rushed for a team high 1009 yards and four TD’s last season as the Giants made an historic run to win the Super Bowl. Last year was his first full year as a starter, as in two previous seasons he had only rushed for 99 yards in 2005 and 423 yards in 2006.

It is likely according to sources that the two sides will keep talking, and a deal may be reached into training camp or at some point during the season. Jacobs did get dinged up last year, as he missed five regular season games, but has proven durable otherwise playing in 31 of 32 games the previous two seasons.
